Being a parent is hard!
You feel isolated and alone. You don’t feel like others around you understand what you are going through. You feel like you have to be a perfect mom and parent. You often feel inadequate and judged by yourself and others around you. You feel anxious about not doing enough and worry about your baby’s safety. You don’t feel confident in yourself. You have difficulty with managing your anger, frustration, anxiety and depression. You struggle with communicating your experiences, thoughts, and feelings with others. You struggle with taking care of yourself and asking for help from others. You don’t want to be perceived as weak or unable to handle parenthood. You struggle getting out of bed due to not getting enough sleep and constantly waking up throughout the night. You feel like this will never end. You feel overwhelmed, stressed, and exhausted.
You want to live your life without guilt, shame, anxiety, and depression. You want to feel like yourself again. You want to be confident in yourself and enjoy parenthood to the fullest.
You are not alone! We can support you in our therapeutic skills and relational support group (Perinatal Dialectical Behavioral Therapy Group), you will develop connections with other parents like yourself and learn coping strategies for managing transitions, your mood, and your trauma symptoms.
